The day Loey Grace Keene and her best friends condemned a man to death was the day she knew she’d never leave Righteous, Tennessee. Running her grandparents’ coffee shop and old farm distracts her from the sins of her past. ’Course, that’s until she discovers the town’s preacher impaled in the cemetery’s oldest tree.
There ain’t never been a storm in Righteous like there was the day Jeronimo James blew into town. He might be Blackmore Baptist’s new preacher, but Loey’s instincts warn her to stay away from his black eyes, cowboy swagger, and motorcycle. His arrival on the heels of a murder, plus his odd questions about salted graves and hallowed ground, lands him smack dab at the top of her suspect list.
Loey’s search for the killer uncovers the magic beneath Righteous’s ancient superstitions and a family secret that further binds her to the town. For centuries, the Keenes have kept Righteous’s threads knotted together, but something sinister is tattering the Seam.
Unless Loey can catch the otherworldly killer and embrace her calling as a Keene, the Seam between Righteous and a pocket world will be ripped forever, unleashing a hungry, vengeful creature onto the God-fearing folk of Righteous.
The Righteous Series is the twisted sweet tea of Southern paranormal suspense. Delve into a world of mysticism, where the lies run as thick as the accents and the superstitions are born of real and powerful mountain magic.

An excellent first book. Meg is a wonderful writer and really pulls you in to the stories, introduces the characters so well. Loved it and can't wait for the next
What I love about this author is you never quite know what's coming when you read her books. This isn't a pretty or happy story in fact in a round about way it's about atonement and truth. After one more traumatic event in this young ladies life after all her dreams and wishes have gone astray now we learn the facts of how she got here. With flashbacks we get it all along with the happenings in the present. Thrown into a battle she has no idea how to win we get to see her in action and meet Jeronimo. This story includes some real dark stuff along with the paranormal and it's blended so well the seams between reality and paranormal interlace with supreme skill, this author tell us a story of deaths, abuse, rape, lies, guilt and deception and the resulting damage. It's so well done that you find yourself falling into the rabbit hole and hoping for something to change, for it not to be happening. This isn't a romance, or sweet story. The truth will come out. When it does, all the towns people and good church goers will say at once Bless Her heart, just like the good southerners they are.
